Wanna 'fling tampons at bad guys'? Planned Parenthood has a game for you!

Sarcastic? Doubtful. Cringe-inducing? Most definitely:

As the end of the summer coding program “Girls Who Code,” Andrea “Andy” Gonzales and Sophie Houser needed to complete a project to graduate. Gonzales wanted to use computer code to influence social change and Houser thought it sounded like a cool idea.

This joke became the basis for Tampon Run, an 8-bit video game with a big mission — de-stigmatizing menstruation. Players become a young woman who must collect tampons before the villains do. When the baddies approach the heroine, she shoots tampons at them. If she runs out of tampons, it’s game over.

“The idea of making it funny and quirky kind of makes menstruation a lot more approachable and more comfortable,” says Gonzales, a 16-year-old junior at Hunter College High School.

Oh yes. Lobbing tampons just screams “approachable.”

Points to the young ladies for creativity. For maturity … not so much. But that’s OK.

Maturity really isn’t what Planned Parenthood’s looking for.
